My greatest highlight is to be able to teach this great game to many high school players. Sharing with them the fundamentals to play better golf as well as the rules of the game. Hopefully this has influenced them both in golf and in life. It is my way to give back to a game that I have enjoyed for many years.
It has been a great experience and I’m grateful to George Porritt and Dave Feldman for giving me this opportunity to coach at the high school level over the past 30 year seasons.

Rob plans to become a PGA professional in the near future and will continue to serve his passion for junior golf.
Coach Rob’s favorite golf quote is the creed of the amateur by Richard S. Tufts:
"Amateurism, after all, must be the backbone of all sport, golf or otherwise. In my mind an amateur is one who competes in a sport for the joy of playing, for the companionship it affords, for health-giving exercise, and for relaxation from more serious matters. As a part of this light-hearted approach to the game, he accepts cheerfully all adverse breaks, is considerate of his opponent, plays the game fairly and squarely in accordance with its rules, maintains self-control, and strives to do his best, not in order to win, but rather as a test of his own skill and ability. Those are his only interests, and, in them, material considerations have no part. The returns which amateur sport will bring to those who play it in this spirit are greater than those any money can possibly buy.”
